"I catch and photograph shrimp participating in activities that most shrimp only dream of."
Presenting our Kindred Artist of the Week series! We are big fans of all the artists we work with and we are so excited to share their stories!
This week’s featured artist is Al Laudert who introduced himself to me as The Shrimp Whisperer and has not lost my attention since! His photographs capture shrimp in all their hidden glory, with playfulness and precision. We're here for it!

Who/what inspires you?
What’s your favorite moment in the process?
What’s a trick of your trade, or a piece of advice for other artists in your medium?
Photography can be so interesting, and there is no substitute for good equipment. I have to plan my shots in advance, with my camera and props in hand because I only have about two hours before my models start to get tired... My advice is to be creative and believe in yourself!
